Meteorological Case Study Selection Kit

This online collection of images maintained by the Mesoscale and Microscale Meteorology (MMM) Division of NCAR include satellite, radar, surface, upper-air, and model output. The spatial domain is largely limited to the central United States and, prior to 2002, the warm season. Although a large portion of the archive originates from within NCAR, most images are simply downloaded from other sources.
